great incumbent disasters were the carter-ford debates, the reagan-carter debates, and then clinton-george h.w. bush debates . and three times you saw the challenger take on the incumbent and win, the debates really mattered. the places where you saw the incumbent do well, for reagan versus mondale, i would argue carter versus dole, or bush versus kerry, the incumbent won. so the-- i think debates matter psychologically to the country. they're the most viewed single event in the campaign. and i think it's always a burden on the challenger-- this isn't about romney. it's about the challenger. the challenger has to make two cases. the incumbent should not be re-elected, and i would do a better job. it's a two-part. you first have to make sure people say, "yeah, obama's stagnation is unacceptable. " but then you have to say, "by the way, this guy will be better." romney, he doesn't have to hit a home run, but romney has to be at the end of the debate wednesday night, a clear alternative who is considered as a potelepresident by a majority-- potential president by the maiority of americ

think anybody would be. it takes a certain-- as president clinton would say-- it takes a certain brass to do what governor romney did. this is what he used to do in private business. he was the closer at bain capital, and the basic theory is say whatever you need to, to get the deal and that's what he did that night. >> romney said that wasn't the case. the president just didn't do his homework. >> the president did plenty of homework. the difference is governor romney went to give a performance. he gave eye good performance. homework entails internalizing facts. governor romney was about the business of distorting them, and ignoring them. >> reporter: let me ask you about the facts, on the taxes question. you say governor romney wasn't truthful. but was that-- you know, he's making a promise. he's saying we're going to have 20% tax reductions and we're going to make that up with loophole closures. you may say that's unrealistic but it's not-- >> john, he said 20% personal income tax deductions. earlier in the year he said for upper income people as well as everyone else. he changed th

earlier who said the shelling has now stopped. secretary of state hillary clinton has called this a very, very dangerous situation. the fear is that it could escalate into a military conflict between turkey and syria. that would be massively destabilizing for the middle east and could even draw in the u.s. turkey is a nato ally. however this morning we've also heard of the senior adviser to the turkish prime minister, who seemed to quell those fears saying turkey has no intention of going to war with syria but that turkey is capable of defending its borders and will retaliate when necessary. >> holly williams, thank you so much. clarissa ward is with us now, reporting on the uprising in syria for more than a year. good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah. >> good to have you here. >> thank you. >> what is the reaction on the part of the people supporting the rebellion against the government to the fact that they have not been getting the kind of assistance they hoped for or expected? >> i think there's a sense now not just of disappointment, but actually of real bitterness. they

that for incomes over $250,000 a year that we should go back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus and created a whole lot of millionaire to boot. and the reason this is important is because by doing that we can not only reduce the deficit, we can not only encourage job growth through small businesses but we're also able to make the investments that are necessary in education. or in energy. and we do have a difference, though, when it comes to definitions of small business. now, under my plan, 97% of small businesses would not see their income taxes go up. governor romney says well those top 3%, they're the job creators, they'd be burdened. but under governor romney's definition, there are a whole bunch of millionaires and billionaires who are small businesses. donald trump is a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as small anything but that's how you define small business if you're getting business income. and that kind of approach i believe will not grow our economy bec

, as in that you're likable enough comment with hillary clinton. disciplined in saying here is what i want to do, here is why you're wrong and here is why i'll do a better job. where he gets into trouble is when something comes out of left field that he hasn't been scripted for and then the $10,000 bet instinct often serves him wrong. >> this is the moment that the challenger has some advantage because it's the first time you've seen him on the stage with the president. >> historically, that's been the case. a president never stands as an equal with another american citizen except during these debates and for all that we read and psych out the race say it may be opening up now there's still this undeniable drama seeing these people in the same room, face to face. the challenger often gets a boost just by being there with the incumbent. >> great piece in "the atlantic." you went back and looked at some 30 hours of the debates and one of the most interesting points you made is that you can actually learn a lot about who won the debate by turning off the sound. what do you mean? >> it's truchlt it'
